The Cimetrics BACstac saves “man-years” of development when your company needs to create a BACnet solution!
The BACnet standard is more than 1300 page book that is a challenging assignment for even the most skilled computer programmers. There are concepts in the HVAC and BUILDINGS INFRASTRUCTURE world that are just not taught in computer school. These differences between BACnet and traditional IT protocols can lead to a significant learning curve when starting from scratch.
Our software team has created a set of BACnet libraries when greatly simplify the task of interfacing to BACnet. Even the largest companies in the HVAC industry use our code because it is a very complex and time-consuming task keeping up with the ongoing changes that are taking place in the BACnet committees.
